26/10/13 5 5 5 5 Dr.March just did an ACL reconstruction on my right knee 24hrs ago. I am already reaching full flexion and extension, with full weight bearing. I have little to no pain considering it was just 24hrs ago. Dr. March looked into all options with regards to what was best for my situation, opting with a graft which will expediate my recovery time. After reading previous comments, I see that people feel he is arrogant, I believe it is more confidence in his abilities, which I love in a surgeon. I would highly recommend Dr March, he has made a huge difference with my knee in only 24hrs after. Bravo Dr March another job well done!!  Respond

14/09/13 5 5 5 5 I found Dr. March very polite and professional. He took appropriate time with me and I did not feel like he rushed through my appointment. He asked health questions, listened to my complaint, examined my injury, and explained my x-ray findings with the use of a model. He gave me his opinion about my injury and recommended an MRI to be certain nothing had been missed. The receptionist was also very nice; quite friendly and professional, explaining the process and time frames for the scheduling of my MRI. I'm very glad that I chose Dr. March!

14/08/13 5 5 5 5 Not sure whay my last rating was removed - My name is Janice S. and I am from London ON. Dr March replaced my knee last year and jsut replaced my husband's hip. We came to Sarnia from London because of the wait times in London and Strathroy are so long. Our whole experience has been great. We found Sarnia Hospital to be very professional and Dr. March did a great job. Nurses in the OR were very friendly. Dr March is especially good at explaining exactly what happens in surgery and used models to show the procedure. My husband had difficulties post operative and Dr. March got a Urologist to see him the same day. We are very pleased with our care and we would still be waiting in London to see a surgeon.  Respond

17/05/13 5 5 5 5 My name is Anna Addley, I had a total hip replacement a year ago. I think Dr. march is a wonderful doctor, a great surgeon and very good at explaining everything. I could hardly walk and now can walk miles and am totally pain free. He was never in a hurry at any of my appointments, and listened to all my questions and answered them all.  Respond
